We all think we know ourselves very well. We think our behaviour and actions are controlled. We may be far from truth when we say, “I have full control over my actions". You will be surprised to know that most of us have very little control on our actions. We are driven to do what we do, and we are not in control. Unbelievable but true. Prem Kamble tells you how and why.

Not all actions are results of our conscious decisions. Most of our actions are results of what Prem calls "Mental Reflex Actions™" which are controlled by our subconscious mind, and on which we have little control. This insight can help us better understand people and improve relations both in our personal and professional lives.

The paper explains human behaviour in light of the controllable and the uncontrollable behaviour. It explains the meaning of subconscious mind, what goes in our subconscious mind, the unfathomable nature of what goes in the subconscious mind and how to know your subconscious mind. It explains what the “Subconscious Rule Book” is and how our life is run based on this rule book, of which our conscious mind may not be even aware. Most of us live our entire life without knowing what is there in our subconscious rule book.

Understanding your subconscious mind is the key to know yourself better, and can help you both in your professional and personal life. It can help you understand people around you - your subordinates and colleagues in office and your friends and relatives in personal life.

You can understand other people well when you know yourself well. It can thus help improve your people management skills at work and your interpersonal relations.

The key to understanding others is to know your inner self.
